Kenya – Maasai Mara National Reserve

            The Maasai Mara National Reserve is a large game reserve in southwestern Kenya. It’s named after the Maasai people living in the area, and the Mara River which flows through it. Iconic images show the wildebeest migration crossing the crocodile infested river. The reserve is located in the Great Rift Valley and covers an area of about 1,510 square kilometers. Wildlife living there include rhinos, lions, elephants, zebras, giraffes, and wildebeest. The annual wildebeest migration ‘ends’ there., Millions of wildebeest and other herbivores move from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the Maasai Mara searching fresh grass and water. Thus, the reserve is a popular destination for safari-goers
